“Cockerham’s Medical Sociology is an outstanding text due to its in-depth and comprehensive treatment of the growing field of medical sociology. It conveys the essence of the scholarly work in this field to my students better than any text on the market. Add Cockerham’s engaging writing style and this text stands out among the competition.”
Dr. J.B. Watson, Jr., Stephen F. Austin State University
“I believe this book is very thorough and includes all of the necessary topics for an undergraduate medical sociology course. Students will come away from this book with a clear and broad understanding of the field.”
Dr. Christine Caffrey, Miami University
Writing Style and Readability
“I like the fact that Cockerham makes this area accessible and interesting at the undergraduate level. Most of my students come into the class not having any real idea what the course will cover; the author deliberately and carefully immerses his readers in the content and in the process they get interested.”
Dr. Deborah Helsel, California State University, Fresno
